Confess, Fletch Showcases Jon Hamm & Marcia Gay Harden’s Banter [EXCLUSIVE CLIP]

Jon Hamm takes over Chevy Chase’s iconic role in Confess, Fletch, the long-awaited reboot arriving in theaters and on digital September 16. Beginning life as a novel published in 1974 by Gregory Mcdonald, Fletch spawned two films in the ’80s before becoming the subject of various revival rumors. Now that the crime comedy is fully on its feet once more, audiences can expect to see Hamm working his charm as the rogueish investigative reporter Irwin ‘Fletch’ Fletcher, who must solve a murder mystery in order to avoid being named the culprit himself.


Produced by Miramax and distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution, Confess, Fletch is based upon the second of Mcdonald’s novels, making it more of a sequel to the original Chevy Chase picture rather than a reboot of the franchise. However, it is set in the modern-day, meaning it stands entirely on its own for those who are stepping into the story fresh. The recently released trailer laid out the premise plainly: after being called to investigate an art theft by Frank (John Slattery, Mad Men), Fletch’s work becomes a lot more complicated when a young woman is murdered and Detective Monroe (Roy Wood Jr, The Daily Show) decides he’s the prime suspect.

Screen Rant is pleased to present an exclusive clip from Confess, Fletch prior to its release, in which audiences can get a closer look at the character of The Countess (played by Marcia Gay Harden). Fletch is busy going over a toxicology report when the Countess Degrassi saunters in demanding accommodating as the hotel is too expensive for her and her assets are currently frozen. Fletch tries to send her away, given that he needs to work, but he is unsuccessful in his endeavors. Watch the full clip here:

The Countess quickly proves herself just another pair of eyes set on watching Fletch’s every move, but he relents in the end—though he is given very little choice in the matter, to be fair. Hopefully, the pair of them will make for a perfect comedic duo as Confess, Fletch sinks further into stolen art pieces and murdered bystanders.

The madcap comedy was directed by Greg Mottola (The Newsroom), who co-wrote the screenplay with Zev Borow (Outer Range). Aside from Jon Hamm and the talented actors already mentioned, the film also stars Kyle MacLachlan, Lorena Izzo, Ayden Mayeri, Anna Osceola, and Annie Mumolo. Confess, Fletch has a runtime of 98 minutes and is rated R for language, some sexual content and drug use.

Confess, Fletch will arrive in theaters and on digital September 16, followed by a Showtime premiere on October 28.
